All of our schools participated in Liturgy and events throughout the week. Bishop Rueger made everything special by his presence and the fact that he gave us a day off made the week even more so. Typing — Mr. Ward Every Thursday afternoon from 12:00 to 2:15 the students went to their enrichment classes where they would do various activities dealing with their class. It was alot of fun and learning too. 57 On April 8, 9 and 10th the place to be was in the gym. The annual Spring musical was held.

Doesn't seem that long. But I did my best to write Some memories in a song. All that wasted time I want back again And I'll spend it all with you — all my friends We're all friends. Some have run to us. We have run to some. We've all done crazy things. That were really dumb. But I still have my whole life to spend And I thank the Lord for all of my friends We're all friends. What will become of us? Now that we are out of school Will you remember me? Cause I'll remember you. Four years have past but they never will be gone All our memories will go on and on and on. So lets say so long. And not say good-bye. As we all depart The tears flow from our eyes. But I don't want this to be the end Of this special love we have between friends We're all friends We're all friends Forever.
